Hi Barrie nice to hear from you.
The interesting bits for me are the things that are done differently or in a new way.
These are:
The free form shaping using the profile gauge for symmetry (I got pretty close by eye)

Polyester mold with gel coat sprayed in with popcorn gun (I got a new compressor that will run continuously)

Engineered mold locating and joining system.

1mm Rohacell for the sandwich material in the finished fuselage.

My first decent size electric model. I might do my own contra gearbox, I mean how hard can it be!
